Casting calls and electric cars

Posted By on Thu, Mar 1, 2012 at 2:06 PM

A couple weeks ago, we told you about a couple of upcoming local casting calls, for Lone Ranger and Menschen.

We've since heard about a third audition to take place soon, this time for the feature-length film Dutchman's Run.

The filmmakers are seeking people for around 25 supporting roles. All the details are inside this press release: CO_Casting_Call_2.23.12.pdf

And switching focus to a film that's already made, and showing tonight at 6 and 8 for free: Catch Revenge of the Electric Car courtesy the Independent Film Society of Colorado in Colorado College's Cornerstone Screening Room (825 N. Cascade Ave.).

Here's a little info on it courtesy a release:

In Revenge of the Electric Car, director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America's future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.
With almost every major car maker now jumping to produce new electric models, Revenge follows the race to be the first, the best, and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world. It's not just the next generation of green cars that's on the line. It's the future of the automobile itself.
Revenge of the Electric Car is narrated by Tim Robbins. The primary cast includes CEO and President of Renault and Nissan Carlos Ghosn; CEO of Tesla Motors Elon Musk; former Vice Chairman of GM Bob Lutz, and EV do-it-yourselfer Greg "Gadget" Abbott.
